backup as compressed backupset format '/[mount_point]/[backup_name]__%Y-%M-%D-%t_s%s_p%p' database plus archivelog not backed up delete all input;
Fast incremental startegy by having the last backup full recovered every day (10g and up)
backup incremental level 1 cumulative for recover of copy with tag 'FULL_DB'device type disk filesperset = 10 tag 'INC_DB' database;
recover copy of database with tag 'FULL_DB';
backup filesperset = 25 tag 'ARCH_BACKUP' archivelog all not backed up delete all input;

When you use execute immediate for dml statements then you must explicity commit.
But when you use execute immediate for ddl statements then all previous dnml statements in a transaction are explicity commited.

select to_bin( 123 ) bin, to_hex( 123 ) hex, to_oct( 123 ) oct from dual;
Just follow the links:
for examples -> http://asktom.oracle.com/tkyte/hexdec/index.html
for the code -> http://asktom.oracle.com/tkyte/hexdec/hexdec.sqlUsing the above functions you can do right shifting
select lpad( to_bin( 3123 ), 15, '0' ) bin1,
lpad( to_bin( trunc(3123/power(2,(rownum-1))) ), 15, '0' ) bin2,
where rownum <= 10;

AIX 5.2 VMM Parameters Tunning
vmtune -c8 -s1 -r32 -R64 -p5 -P20 -t20 -f128 -F144 -W32
setting maxfree to 144
Setting minfree to 128
Setting minperm% to 5
Setting maxperm% to 20
Setting maxclient% to 20
Setting minpgahead to 32
Setting maxpgahead to 64
Setting maxrandwrt to 32
Setting numclust to 8
Setting sync_release_ilock to 1
async io servers : maxservers = 10 * CPU, minservers=maxservers/2
The above parameters are a good starting point. You can tune a little bit by monitoring performance.
If your database is an OLTP system , using lots of db_sequential_reads (index scans) you can put minpgahead to 512 and maxpgahead to 1024 on JFS and JFS2 volume groups.
For async io you can use the disks rule of thumb: maxservers=10*[total_disks_for_oracle_files],minservers=maxservers/2
On AIX 5.3 there is a slight diference in the way the VMM works so you can use this settings:
vmo -r -o lgpg_size=16777216 lgpg_regions=128
vmo -p -o minperm%=5
vmo -p -o maxperm%=90
vmo -p -o maxclient%=90
vmo -p -o lru_file_repage=0
vmo -p -o minfree=960
vmo -p -o maxfree=1088
For async io as for AIX 5.2.
Oracle Parameters for 9iR2(184.108.40.206) and up :
filesystem_options=SETALL Enables both ASYNC and DIRECT I/O or CONCURRENT I/O(JFS2)
It is advisable not to use direct I/O because degrades performance. If you have only JFS filesystems then use filesystem_options=ASYNC which is the default setting.
There is no "built-in" support for CIO or DIO in Oracle Database 9iR2 (9.2.0) or lower, though you can force the use of CIO (JFS2) or DIO (JFS) with filesystem mount options.
